Beef & Tomato Macaroni Soup

Tried & True Recipes

Beef & Tomato Macaroni Soup - a hearty soup full of hamburger, tomatoes, macaroni, and more! Worcestershire sauce combined with brown sugar makes for a perfectly sweet and savory flavor that is irresistible!!

Good morning blog land! I cannot tell you how excited I was to wake up this morning to a crisp cool feeling in the air. Granted it was still in the high 70’s (ok, lets be honest, low 80’s). But even still, there is always a special feeling as the temperatures start to drop. Its my favorite time of year for so many reasons. One of which is SOUP. Let me be clear, the Luna family is not afraid to make soup all year long, even on a 115 degree day. However, cooler temps are always a wonderful excuse to cook up something warm. Which brings me to today’s wonderfully warm recipe… Beef & Tomato Macaroni Soup!

We tried this recipe a few weeks ago and instantly fell in love. The kids couldn’t get enough of it, which makes it a new family favorite. The Worcestershire sauce combined with the brown sugar makes for a perfectly sweet and savory flavor that is irresistible. Best part is that the soup is made from standard ingredients that we always have in the fridge and pantry, which means we can make it any time. If you love hearty soups, be sure to check this one out and give it a try. We think you’ll love it!

    My mother made this for us kids growing up. I made it for my kids and now I make it for my grandkids and we all love it. We called it goulash. It is nice to see it in print.

    One of my wonderful memories from my childhood. My grandmother and then my mother made this soup in the winter. Now I make it, but I also add canned red beans. Grandma and mom would be proud.

    Wow was so unimpressed and disappointed. First of all the ingredients say onion powder and ketchup but the description doesn’t say where to add them in. I figured it out but still poorly written. Second of all I used 2 oz more beef stock and within 8 minutes (says 15min) of adding the pasta the stock boiled away and pasta was overcooked. Third of all the description doesn’t tell you if you cook on medium or low or high. So I cooked the pasta on medium and still within 8 min the broth (stock) was gone.
    I was really looking forward to trying this recipe and it was a disaster. Poorly written and edited.

      Sorry you feel that way! I will go and fix the recipe to add what I missed. Thank you for giving it a try though!

      Why don’t you try using common sense, which is the most important ingredient in cooking. This is simply soup! If you see it is going dry, just add water or more broth. Better yet, cook the macaroni in a separate pot until almost done before you add it to the broth! Add it after all other ingredients are done. It won’t suck up all the broth if you cook it separately.

    This is on the stove right now. I was looking for something quick and inexpensive to make tonight for super and found your recipe.
    I added some diced carrots, and onions (omitted the onion powder). I noticed in the instructions it says “…canS of tomatoes…” so I went with 2 cans instead of one. I didn’t have any brown sugar so I used 3/4 of tbsp of white. The broth tastes great and I can’t wait for it to be finished so I can start dipping the crusty rolls I bought to go with it!
    Thank you for sharing the recipe!

        It was delicious!!!
        My husband is a truck driver so doesn’t get home till late at night. I try to always have something for him to eat that he can just reheat in the microwave. This was perfect for that. When he got up this morning he said “that soup last night was REALLY good!”
        We both give it a thumbs up and it will be made again. 🙂

    Hi Kellyn,
    It’s the same for our family – we love making soups all year long!
    This beef & tomato macaroni soup reminds me of my mom. She used to make something similar when I was a kid. 🙂

    This recipe is awesome added a chopped onion and another box of beef broth. Unless someone reads it wrong it comes out perfect. Loved it! Lunch for and few days. Thank u.

    So far mine is extremely runny. Not soup texture at all. Not sure what I have done wrong.

    • 17

      It is a liquidey soup. It’s not a thicker consistency. It’s more like a broth with the meat, pasta, and tomatoes. Hope that helps! Let me know how it comes out and tastes. Good luck!

    I have been craving goulash for months but I didn’t find a recipe that sounded good to me until I ran across a pin of this recipe! I made this last night and I’m in love. I added 1/2 cup of soy sauce, an onion, 2 green peppers, and 1 red pepper to add some more flavor and color. I didn’t use as much broth but there was still enough to dip some rolls in. Thank you!

    This recipe looks good and easy! I cannot find chopped tomatoes at the store, can I use diced instead?

  10. 22

    Can I used canned diced tomatoes instead of chopped tomatoes? I can’t find canned chopped tomatoes anywhere!
